For the record I welcomed 2013 in a proper dress but I did want to address my new fascination with nudity. For years I have been doing shots that have craftily avoided the visual of the "nether regions". Lately I have abandoned that rule and for good reason. It is my opinion that the female body is the most beautiful and incredible thing ever created. I dont see any shame in it and I believe in smashing down the old stereotypes that sex and sexuality is a dirty thing. I have been researching alot on what it is that defines the border between porn and art and I think it is about time that we ladies reclaimed our naughty bits from the dirtbags and the pornogrpahers who have taken sole, visual possession of them. I believe that nudity, full female nudity can be portrayed with elegance and artistry. I also believe that sexuality can be portrayed with absolute and utmost dignity and elegance. I realize that many people think that photos and visuals depicting things such as masturbation and penetration are considered pornogrpahic but I believe that this is simply because it is only the pornogrpahers who are depiciting it. I think we as artists and models shoud reclaim this aspect of our reality and give it a new and more elegant spin. I find it disgusting that some unknown dirtbags own the "right" to control how and what I portray simply through their existence. I am an adult, I am sexually active and these are things that are part of my day to day reality. Why is it that some pornographer gets the sole right to portray them? Why is it that if I created such images an entire segment of the population would instantly brand me a "porn" chick?
I full understand that the idea of porn is that it is a visual representation of something meant to create a sexual reaction. My thoughts on that are that this type of ideology marginalizes and objectifies women. What is we females actually feel like creating an art work that depictsa our own sexual gratification and some guy's arrousal is just the unintended byproduct? Honestly the idea here is that I and MANY models and artists are creating art that represents something for US and if it happens to turn someone on well then so be it. People, me included get turned on when a pretty girl walks down the street in a flimsy dress but does that mean it is porn? Is she doing it to turn people on? Or is she doing it simply for HERSELF and her own gratification? As a girl who regularly wears flimsy dresses( when the weather cooperates) I will say that I personally DO IT FOR MYSELF and actually am quite happy when I manage to avoid tacky types of attention.
So the new idea for art in 2013 is to explore new and limitless aspects of art ( You will only see that which is within DA rules) and doing what I can to take back my sexuality and my freedom to portray it back from the dirtbags and the scumbags who have for decades made it into something filthy and lowbrow. This will be a year of exploration and boundary smashing for me. Hope you hold on for the ride. Advice and opinions are GREATLY appreciated.
